capabilities. we sometimes screw that up, as the case of benghazi demonstrates. the biggest policy question for us is how we become more nimble and understand the political trends in these societies. [applause] >> thank you, brian. bret, you are up. >> , am very honored to be here. i am particularly honored to be on a panel introduced by jim woolsey. i have the greatest admiration for him. the austrian physicist used to put down his worst students by saying, you're not even wrong. [laughter] that is how i am inclined to take this project i will spare you. -- i will spare you. if i say to my son what is 5 + 7711, that is wrong. -- seven and he says eleven, that is wrong. what it is has been that? what do of heard from reuel is a banana. the choice that we face is between secular dictatorship of the mubarak, or and democracy. we have to accept this democracy because even if it is islamist, it is a type of democracy. if you cast your mind back to january of 2011 when this whole business began, maybe december of 2010 with tenacious, -- tunisia, you could have made an argument that would have tu
when she made her comments about the attack on the u.s. outpost in benghazi. susan collins of maine is one of the senators who met with ambassador rice this week. senator collins is also among the republicans who say they need more information about benghazi before they can support ambassador rice for secretary of state. president obama has not yet nominated anybody. but this week he defended ambassador rice calling her extraordinary. the benghazi attack killed the u.s. ambassador to libya. chris stevens and three other americans on 9/11 of this year. five days after that. ambassador rice wept on the sunday talk shows and said u.s. officials believed the violence was a spontaneous reaction to protests over anti-muslim video. ambassador rice says she was using talking points directly from intelligence agencies that turned out to be wrong. intelligence officials now confirm they did indeed give her those talking points but senator collins tells fox news ambassador rice had access to a lot more information. catherine herridge in d.c. tonight. catherine? >> well, thank you, shepard. it'
hill in benghazi in the next hour. growing privacy concerns over a proposed device by verizon wireless antenna can listen in on customers conversations and use that information for private ads. trace gallagher is live with more. reporter: as you know, when you get a cable box, you get the box to control things like your dvr in your channel guide and your on demand movies. now, verizon wireless would like to control another mix. such is infrared cameras and sensors. the conversations that people are having, even the types of objects that are in the room. it is to target advertising based on what is happening at that moment. the sensors are so cute that if you are arguing, you would see an advertisement for counseling. order if you're snuggling, you will see an advertisement for contraception. it could target your current mood for something. you could see it pop up on the screen. it's kind of creepy. if you are holding a tablet or a cell phone, you will have an advertisement directed to your tablet or phone. and it says that verizon might have to notify you about this, or they might tell
to deny additional security to our ambassador, who is heading to benghazi an even to allow him to be there but there have been multiple attacks in benghazi. the red cross pulled out. the british pulled out. we continue to send our underprotected ambassador there where he and three other brave americans were massacred. jon: is it your view that we should not have had diplomatic personnel on the ground or we should have had a military style protection force or both? >> they either needed to be not there or adequately protected. i want to know why the administration on two occasions following two already previous attacks on the consulate there in benghazi still denied additional security and allowed our ambassador there. these are things that developed before the attacks. so much of this focus has been what happened during and after the attack with susan rice and her comments. i want to get it back to the president and the secretary of state and they bear responsibility for what happened on 9/11. jon: well, secretary clinton has already said that the buck stops with her as far as
when it came under fire in benghazi, including our ambassador to libya, chris stevens. secretary of state hillary clinton created the independent review board, however, she will not be able to testify at the benghazi hearings later this week because of a concussion. let's talk about it all with steven yates a former deputy assistant for the vice president for national security affairs during the bush administration. steven, thank you for being with us today. >> glad to be with you, jon. jon: this independent advisory review board was appointed by the state department. does that mean it's controlled by the state department or does it live up to it's title of independence in. >> it's independent in the sense that it doesn't come within the bureaucracy. it will be former officials that guide the effort. it will be informed very much by sources within the bureaucracy itself. i think it's part of an effort to focus more on lower-level bureaucrat particular decisions and operational decisions and away from political and policy decision has fed into the controversy. jon: do you expect w

scrutiny from congress over her knowledge of the attack in benghazi, libya, that killed four americans. >> does this now mean john kerry is the front runner to be the next secretary of state? >> republicans and democrats said the nominee who would be most easily confirmed is john kerry. >> the president wants to pretend that spending isn't the problem. that's why we don't have an agreement. >>> 18 days now and counting to avoid that fiscal cliff. president obama and house speaker john boehner met at the white house. >> the two men met for less than an hour and that is not an encouraging sign. >> i remain hopeful this we can get this resolved. >>> breaking news a 6.3 earthquake off the southern california coast was felt from san diego north into l.a. county. >> southern california is in store for another day of high tides and flooding. the so-called king tides are formed by the alignment of the sun, moon and earth. >>> this happens once every 30 years. >> former south african president nelson mandela is said to be making progress as he battles a lung infect
states. we're almost two years into it. look at libya, benghazi. overflow into places like mali where al qaeda is controlling territory. egypt, bahrain, yemen, syria. the place, the place is really a mess and i don't think the administration's policies have been very effective. they oversold what they thought would happen in this part of the world. we have real challenges to american interests right there right now. adam: i don't know if you can answer this question in 30 seconds if you were president obama with egypt and syria falling apart, what do you do? >> oh gosh in 30 seconds. i don't know how you talk about that but you've to be proactive as opposed to reactive. you can't allow these things to kind unfold without taking, taking measures, economic, diplomatic, potentially militariliry little to shape the future of american interests in that part of the world. i can't go through all that in 30 seconds. you can't be reactive but you need to be proactive not assuming things will go your way. adam: peter brookes. hopefully we have a discussion in the future and things don't actually d
with the benghazi situation. she read off of talking points. she's talented and capable woman whom i have known for many years. it's the president's call. he's entitled to have people in the positions that he chooses to have them. congress has to confirm these people. they have been warned that the susan rice confirmation could be difficult, but the president has a right to choose her if he wishes and with respect to john kerry, very capable man, according to press reports he's also being considered for the secretary of defense position. again, i don't know what happens there. he does a marvelous job in the united states congress as head of the foreign relations committee. we have all good options for john in my view. john kerry could serve ably in any number of positions. want to say about egypt, i don't know how much time you have, andrea, but some key egyptian national security officials are in washington now explaining egypt's recent actions. again that's a whole -- >> we were going to -- >> big pile of moves. i mean many good, some troubling, hopefully egypt and the people of egypt can fin
watched al qaeda elements able to destroy our or damage severely our consulate in benghazi and kill four brave americans. the message has to be sent that the united states is in engaged and that the united states is ready to be involved and the united states is ready to do whatever is necessary to prevent an act that could endanger or take the lives of literally thousands and thousands of innocent people. >> thanks, john. we have reached a grave moment in the war that's raging in syria now for 20 months. and it's grave for the obvious fact that we believe that the assad government has weapononized chemical and biological agents and put them in a position where they can be used fairly rapidly. as you look back over the 20 months of this conflict, this follows a series of events, one leading to the other which people said could not happen. this began, remember, with peaceful demonstrations. and when assad was unable to control them or suppress, he began to fire on his own people and they began to defend themselves in a very unfair fight which everyone thought we should take sides on the si
intelligence capabilities. we sometimes screw that up as the case of benghazi demonstrates the biggest policy question which i hope we debate is how we become more nimble and understand the political trends. thanks. [applause] thank you very much. bret coming you are up. first of all entry honored to be here and particularly honored to be on the panel introduced by jim i have the greatest admiration for and to be with this mostly distinguished panel. [laughter] the exception of course is reuel. the austrian physicist used to put down his worst students by saying you're not even wrong. [laughter] that's why i am inclined to take the comments. you know, if i say to my son what is five plus seven and he says 11, that's wrong. if he says banana then he's not even wrong. what you have heard from reuel especially is a banana. what would he has just essentially done in a very slippery and disingenuous way is to say that the choice that we face is between secular dictatorship in the strike or various others and democracy we have to accept this democracy because even if it is an islamist democracy if

was not. i was talking about benghazi. >> you do not use the word immigration. >> it came up a little bit. it came up in the following way. people wanted to know that the president cared about the issue. they wanted to understand not -- why it had not been achieved in his first term. this served almost the same function i view, that of a threshold issue. if they are ok on immigration, they will listen to the rest of it. if you're not, they will not listen to the rest of it. but not think it is fully the problem. it served a little bit in this anecdotal evidence derived from interviews. it was an issue. it was almost a euro can this issue. >> alphonso. what did you do on your thoughts and vacation? i know you organize an independent television ad campaign in nevada. explain to us what that means. how does that word? how does it work? what did the election but like stick to your personal experience and then we will broaden it out. >> the great thing is that it is independent. i'm not here to defend the romney campaign. we realized we needed to do something different. the latino vote would b
at the -- you know, in her term, leading the benghazi situation, and also tim geithner's numbers are so bad because of the terrible fiscal situation we're in. and i think susan rice, i think the president stood behind her, as long as he possibly could, and just couldn't stand behind her anymore. i think what we're seeing, already, with the hagel potential nomination, is i think a lot of the republicans are withholding their judgment. they are -- they don't like the way he was critical of the iraq situation. but many of them, what i'm hearing, is they're reserving judgment. but i think it is good for the administration to throw names out there. to see what kind of feedback they may be getting. but we all know that the nomination process is a tough one, no matter who is put out there to face the questions. >> alice, senator mike crapo of idaho was arrested this week in virginia, for dui, and he's found himself now back in the hometown newspaper in idaho, being compared, at least favorably, to former senator larry craig. listen to this and let's look at the words -- oh, i can't read it. all ri
